NOTES:

Took 2nd place at the Brew Grass Derby Youngstown, OH. (Held on May 2, 2009 - National Big Brew day.) Around 50 entries. 200 + attendees, who vote for their favorite. Even a lot of people who aren't really into IPA's liked this one, due to the balance and drinkability. Bitter up front, but a nice malty sweetness on the finish.

loving the hop variety. looks like a good brew to me. i may put this one on deck, but goodness gracious, 24 gallons is one heck of a lot of brew. i do 5-10 gallons and i think the 10 gallon batches are more than enough. glad it turned out for you. anything you would do differently if you made this again?
